Rocks extend Championship lead

Bristol Flyers 71-89 Radisson Red Glasgow Rocks (16-19, 39-43, 59-68)
(Flyers – Bradley 22, Delpeche 15, Lockett 13; Rocks – Murray 23, Thorpe 17, Vinson 16)

Radisson Red Glasgow Rocks extended their run at the top of the BBL Championship Saturday night, moving to a 12-3 record.

Following their win last night against Plymouth Raiders, the Glaswegian side completed back-to-back wins in the BBL Championship after a dominant win over the Bristol Flyers, 71-89, to end their road trip in the South-West.

It looked to be a tight game throughout the first quarter with Bristol and Glasgow continuing to trade baskets throughout.

After the half-time break, Glasgow came out of the gates quickly and put themselves in the lead, from then on the Rocks didn’t look back and charged through the second half with scoring contributions from Gareth Murray (23 points) and Dante Thorpe (17 points).

The win now puts Glasgow four points ahead of current league champions London Lions.
